D-Mannose is a simple sugar that occurs naturally in some plants, including aloe vera. Although small amounts of D-Mannose are made by the human body, much of it is rapidly excreted in the urine.
D-Mannose encourages foreign particles to bind to it rather than the lining of the urinary tract. It works in this way: In the bladder, D-Mannose sticks to undesirable particles, preventing them from attaching to the lining of the bladder. These particles can thereby be flushed away during urination, making it more difficult for them to stay inside the urinary tract.
D-Mannose is safe and natural, and since it isn't metabolized in the body, it doesn't interfere with blood sugar regulation or create an imbalance in the normal body gut flora (microorganisms that normally live in the digestive tract). Health Functions:
